waterproofing/Sealing Deck

I just power washed my deck and need to protect. What sealer/waterproofer do you recommend. Is Thompson's good? I used Wolmans in the past. Also, how long should I wait make sure the wood is completley dry before sealing?

Marks51,

You should wait about 48 hours, with no rain as well, for drying time. You also should allow for approx. 24 hours on the other side for drying. All in all you are looking for about 3 good days. This is for applying oil base stains or sealers. Wolman is a good product. I like Cabot Stain and Sealers better than the others.

The short answer:

Use the Wolmans(F&P) again, or Sikkens, Cabots, SuperDeck, Readyseal, Menwood.

'T' product - NO

Three good days for drying is good!

And I see Everett has beat me by a minute or two!!!
